Once upon a time a beautiful princess named Sub Bella ordered two stocking stuffers. She was excited and did not wait to see if Popsugar would offer a coupon a few weeks later. Popsugar deemed our princess fit for The Decorator Box after much discussion among themselves. It finally arrived by a beautiful USPS coach driven by a nice mail carrier who doesn’t throw breakable packages.
Our princess is still waiting to hear from Popsugar if she is worthy of the Hostess stocking stuffer that she has ordered. Subscriptionista, the Bodacious Blond Bombshell aka Queen of the Cats, rescued our princess by ordering the November Ruelala special that arrived by another beautiful coach called Fedex. Princess Sub Bella is now saved from embarrassment because her clan can play Bingo.
I placed an order for the now soldout Popsugar Must Have The Decorator Stocking Stuffer back on November 29th for $80.00. It shipped on December 10th and arrived on December 19th. My breakable package decided to stay in Ohio for days before making its way to me. It is the first time I ever had a tracking number change from a delivery date to no delivery date.
The items are from the Neiman Marcus Popsugar 2014 Box. The box did not make any noise when I picked it up off of my doorstep. Everything looks intact.
Normally I would enjoy unwrapping the items. This time, it was more of a hassle because there wasn’t much in the way of packing material in the box. I was concern whether I received broken items.
Swing Design Mia Glass Storage Box: My husband is stuffing my stocking the glass storage box. I am glad it arrived safely. It is beautiful. The interior is plush. The storage box opens and closes easily. It is a beautiful piece that accents the bedroom. I had my eye on this piece for a year.
Missoni Home Candle – Laguna: I was hoping for the Monterosa or Mediterraneo scent. The Laguna has a light, floral scent. The scent notes are cypress, dianthus, and jasmine. It is made in the USA and has a burn time of 80 hours. I can’t tell if it is a 100% soy candle or a soy blend candle. I’m leaning towards a soy blend candle.
I love the candle container. It’s beautiful and will look great in the family room. It is a heavy weight.
Monica Rich Kosann Cream Enamel Picture Frame: Our home is not the kind of home that has $100.00 picture frames. The frame is beautiful. It has a cream color enamel border and a suede back. It is a beautifully made frame. I was going to use it to stuff someone else’s stocking, but the time has passed for that.
I decided since I had to find a replacement gift due to the delay in shipping, that I can use the frame for my prints. The print from the December Believer’s Box is in the frame. I had a hard time with the picture because the frame kept reflecting back.
The kitties are lazy. I may be repeating photos because all they want to do is sleep. It must be kitty hibernation season.
Verdict: I am happy that my box arrived safely. I love the swing box and like the candle container. The frame is an unexpected bonus because I was going to give it as a gift. I am happy with my box, but I wish I had waited to order and saved $25.00!

Great review! I ordered the box with the headband, hand cream and little blue purse the day it was posted. I received it yesterday, 2 days after I was going to gift it. I never received a tracking number and had emailed PS to see if it had been shipped. I never got a response, but finally got the box. I went ahead and bought replacements too. So I’m giving the headband to my daughter, the little purse will go in a caring crate and my husband snatched up the lotion. He loved it when it originally came and I’ve purchased 2 others since, so he was very happy to see another tube. So, all’s well that ends well, I guess.
I’m glad it worked out for you! I am hoping my Hostess stocking stuffer will appear one day.
I love the opening story of this post! I was thinking I would love the candle the most from your review but I am drawn to the frame and I am not into frames! I like how you used a print.
Thank you! I had a hard time capturing the print with the frame. The white on the frame and on the print brings it all together.
Oooo I have always dreamed of swapping for that candle. It is sooo pretty!
Thanks! I thought about it and imagined it arriving in pieces. That would be so sad.
Everything looks gorgeous, but my favorite was the intro story.
Thank You! I wanted to have a little fun with it. My Nov PopSugar box showed up later in the day so there may be a part two.
Wonderful intro! This box looks much better in your review than it did on the PS website… I agree with Pnut that the frame looks great and I’m not usually much into picture frames. The candle is beautiful but it’s too bad you didn’t get one if the ones you really wanted.
And I can’t believe you don’t have your hostess box yet! When you ordered, did they give any indication of when you should receive the boxes? Like a guarantee that you’d have them by Christmas at least??
I checked my account and the decorator box has a Tracking Number. The Hostess Box says pending. It says boxes ordered by December 18th will arrive by Dec 24th. I ordered back on Nov 28th and thought it would ship earlier. I should have known better with Popsugar. I attended Christmas parties last weekend and this weekend. I’m sure others had gifts that needed to be given earlier too. It’s a great concept, but it doesn’t help if the items don’t arrive when needed. The frame was perfect!!! I hate it when I find the perfect gift and it falls through.
